Interesting facts of the cave and enjoyed the visit. Spent a lot of time reading the displays and our tour guide showed us all the various spots inside the caves.

I went up 3 times, every single time I went up I still was amazed. The amount of steps is a little daunting at first, but the views that you get as you go up are to die for. I made it up in under an hour; but I find it nice to stop along the way, and if you can watch some of the many monkeys that live there... just watch out, they like to steal water bottles!

“Wonderful view from the top”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

It wasn't an easy climb to the top. There are about 1,200 steps. If you have a weak heart, I suggest you should abstain from this activity. My suggestion is to take it easily and reach the top at your own pace, though it may take more than an hour. But if you are able, you will be rewarded with a wonderful view from the top. Along the way up, you will come across some primates. It would be better not to provoke them in order not to be attack by them. All in all, we truly enjoyed our climb.

This is something everyone should do! Amazing place, buildings are beautiful. The buddah at the top of the mountain is impressive, it's a hard climb, 1237 steps to the top and some of the steps are big and steep, so be prepared to sweat! I would say to go in the morning when it's not too hot! Wear appropriate clothing as respect to the monks living there. Watch out for the monkeys stealing your food too!!!

Its a hard way climbing the over 1200 stairs, passing crazy monkeys and some very narrow steps, but arriving on top, the view is justnbreath taking. Worthy to do it over and over
